After thinking about all the complaints about there not being any blacks on the jury, I am thankful there were not. For they surely would have received the same despicable treatment that Joe Oliver did; Uncle Tom, race traitors, etc., etc. I believe any black who sat on that jury would have come to the same conclusion that the jurors did. While what happened was tragic, Zimmerman did not violate any laws of the State of Florida and was not guilty of the charges brought against him.
Nothing can diminish the truth that a young life was lost, and I can't imagine the pain that the Martin's must feel. But the unbelievable furor that was ginned up over this case diminishes Trayvon's death just as much as it destroys Zimmerman's life. There are no winners and no resolution to the pain on either side.
